This Transcription By: Niall 'Uncle Clitsta' (lates_dude@hotmail.com)
formally known as clitz
note: Tuning is VITAL on this one, you must get your strings tuned to the
above for it to sound right.
this was requested so I thought I'd get the ball rolling, may not be 100%
but once someone starts off usually good corrections follow.
Doing this from memory, had it in my room pretty correct.
